Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s debut Netflix project date ‘leaked’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be just months away from dropping their first project on Netflix.

The couple, who sensationally ditched the royal family claiming they were hoping for a life out of the spotlight, confirmed they inked a mega-deal with the streaming giant last month.

Now royal expert Rachel Bowie says she believes the former TV actress and her husband will release their first project in 2021.

Speaking on Royally Obsessed podcast, Bowie said: "They're probably busy working because sources last week revealed that one of the Sussexes’ Netflix shows will air as soon as 2021.

"We could have one of their Netflix shows in less than a year. It was Omid Scobie who said that on his HeirPod podcast.

"Their whole deal is only five years long.

"So we are going to get a whole lot of Sussex content really quickly."

Previously speaking in a statement, the duo said: "Our lives, both independent of each other and as a couple, have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.

"Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.

"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens."

Speaking earlier this month, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings revealed that Meghan and Harry "shopped around" before singing the deal.

He told CNBC: "They're smart, they were shopping it around across all the major companies and I think we really put together the best complete package.

"It's going to be epic entertainment. We're going to do a wide range of entertainment with them.

"I can't tell you any more than that about it at this point, but I think it will be some of the most exciting, most viewed content next year."

Meanwhile, Royal expert Rhiannon Mills told Sky News that she believes the deal will allow actress Meghan more freedom compared to life as a working royal.

Mills said: "Certainly, Prince Harry has been used to getting involved in the odd documentary in the past and Meghan made her name through the TV series Suits.

"I think for them in a way this is an ideal partnership.

"It gives them a platform to talk about those issues, those platforms, those causes that matter to them and that has been the big problem for them in the past."

She continued: "That is why in some ways they felt constrained by the Royal Family, that is why they wanted to step away.

"This allows them now to tell their own story and have a huge international platform."
